Softwood lapping sticks are used as carriers for finer diamond compounds for high-gloss polishing. The softwood selected is smooth and gritless to ensure a perfect finish.
What are they used for?
Softwood lapping sticks are used for preliminary polishing where high cut and stock removal is required. They are used for final polishing on mould tools and dies. They are used as a carrier for diamond compound to create a high mirror finish on most metals but mostly steel.
Softwood lapping sticks can be used either by hand or with a reciprocatory tool such as a Diprofil which can significantly speed up the process.
Many of our customers use lapping fluid to lubricate the process and to help bring on a better shine on steel.
Softwood lapping sticks are a low cost but high quality option.
Softwood is generally used with finer diamond compound for finishing.
This is a one off item available in a bag of approx 17 sticks in a variety of lengths and widths from 100mm long to 150mm long.
